Email marketing is incredibly advantageous around the holidays. In a technological age where almost everyone is connected to a device on a daily basis, emails have the power to spread the word to your target audience much quicker than any non-digital marketing strategy. While email marketing can sometimes overwhelm potential customers, it also has the ability to allure them with impressive sales and convincing bylines. So, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and email your customers about your boxing day sale or the start of a 2019 promotion.
If our little introductory paragraph wasn’t convincing enough to get you on-board, here are a few reasons that should have you head-over-heels for email marketing.
Portable email inboxes
With the development of smartphones and the forceful inclusion of data on most phone plans, people have their email inboxes where ever they go. This is a beautiful thing for e-commerce business owners who are trying to market new products and services or an upcoming sale. No one is ever truly offline.
Combine marketing strategies
While email marketing is effective on its own, combining your efforts with other digital marketing strategies, such as social media marketing or content marketing, can make your digital marketing strategy much more effective. If you don’t have the time to manage all of your campaigns, hiring a professional to do it for you can really help take the load of and allow you to dedicate your time to different areas of your business.
Emails build relationships
Email marketing is a very reliable way to reach potential shoppers during a time of year where everyone is scrambling to fulfill a shopping list. This is because people have opted to receive your newsletters to let them know about anything important that’s going on within your company. While posting to Facebook is a great tool as well, not every follower will actually see your all of your posted content. In comparison, emails are sent directly to the inbox of every person that is subscribed which is a much easier way to build trust within your customers and get the word out there about the fantastic products or services you have that gift receivers would love to get as a gift during the holidays.
